Helen Greiner: Robots - Saving Money, Time and Lives [ETCON2004]


Published February 10, 2004


Robotic technology saves time, money, and lives -- and is the next big growth market. iRobot's PackBots have inspected caves in Operation Enduring Freedom and cleared buildings in operation Iraqi Freedom, reducing the risk to our soldiers. One iRobot creation, the pyramid rover, has explored ancient tunnels in the Great Pyramid of Egypt where no one had been in 5000 years. The award-winning Roomba Robotic Floorvac, using iRobot's advanced navigation technology with virtually no human assistance, has developed a dedicated following, inspiring fan web sites, theme parties, and hacks. Come learn what some of the best robotics minds in the world are planning for the future of this important new technology.

This was a keynote presentation at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference held in San Diego, California, February 10, 2004.
